Productivity: Print Longer Without Interruption
The two large paper rolls for the iPF825 allows printing for hundreds of feet. Automatically switch between different media types or use two rolls of the same paper for printing of large, consecutive runs. And with Canon's unique sub-ink tank system, you can replace ink on-the-fly without stopping the printer. Choose extra large 700ml ink tanks for increased productivity. For long print runs, a high-capacity media basket comes standard with the iPF825. Add the optional high-capacity stacker for even greater print yields when printing on plain paper.
The optional stacker provides a flat surface to offload prints and eliminates the need for operator handling. Built for high productivity, this stacker automatically picks up documents of mixed document sizes and stacks them up to 300 sheets.
High-Speed Printing: L-COA processor
Canon's advanced system architecture achieves print speeds up to 688 ft./hr.2 on uncoated media. When you need to keep projects moving forward and meet deadlines, this kind of speed is critical. Output two D-size (24″x36″) drawings per minute or print a full colour, 2400x1200 dpi high resolution A0 size image with full graphic coverage on heavyweight coated paper in only three minutes. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon's L-COA processor, at the heart of every imagePROGRAF printer.
The L-COA (Large Format Printer COmmon Architecture) print controller drives the imagePROGRAF print engine to lay down ink with exceptional speed and precision. This unique, high-speed processor enables the print system to process large volumes of data while optimizing output of complex high-colour GIS images and architectural renderings for maximum readability and colour accuracy.
Precision Printing: High-Density Print Head
Engineered for speed and advanced image production, the iPF825 boasts Canon's latest print-head technology to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The iPF825 uses a high-precision, high-density print head with a total of 15,360 nozzles to lay down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets that produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output with fine lines that are accurate to ±0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm.
160GB Hard Drive
A built-in 160GB hard drive within the printer increases productivity by relieving workload from the host PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage, and retrieval. This 160GB hard drive enables job data to be stored in protected mailboxes for easy access via web browser or at the printer for job re-printing. The embedded hard disk is ideal for medium to large workgroups to share a printer efficiently with multiple users, offering ample job storage space.
The Accounting Manager serves as a powerful feature, used for accurate management of printing costs and other information that is increasingly important in today's economic environment. With Accounting Manager feature you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing large format output. Costs can be assigned to the ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own "Cost of goods". Each individual ink tank can have its own cost associated to it, as well as a variety of different paper types. The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel so the data can be used for billing purposes. This feature will allow you to determine the cost of each print based on your actual cost.

Economy Print Mode
Reduce total ink consumption by utilizing the Economy Print Mode for producing draft prints on select media. This feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print.
Reactive Ink System
Ideal for technical applications, Canon's breakthrough 5-colour dye/pigment Reactive Ink technology utilizes four highly colourfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive colour, plus two channels of matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves and small text on technical and office documents. These Canon inks provide superior adhesion to media, scratch and marker resistance and ensure minimal "bleeding" between colours and text. Even small text printed on coloured backgrounds or on uncoated technical papers is crisp and legible.
With the Canon HDI Driver for AutoCAD application, the driver creates a vector graphical representation of the printed data. Here, points are defined and a curved line is calculated mathematically in order to achieve precision. The HDI Driver creates a graphically accurate drawing of the printed data.
